Do you write poetry? Are there any poems by others which you love? Share a poem with me and everyone here!..It can be yours -just specify you wrote it...Or it can be from someone else -specify from who or state if you do not know, or you do -but cannot say...ANY & ALL~ I will begin with one of mine~ ~What Can Be Said~ What can be said of the nothing I feel What can be done when nothing's so real Nothing in sunrise nothing in sunset Nothing to surmise a silent quartet So void, so hollow God please let this fill Something it can swallow something to fullfill I'm vacant I'm naked I'm soon going to die can't fight with no strength can't see with no eye All doom All gloom All slipping so fast my grasp has no strength my will cannot last The hole is so deep I feel there's no end No way to turn back no heal..no mend Please let it be known to you who thus reads this passage in time this moment I seized Do all that you can with all power you hold to make the best choices in all you behold The Beauty of the Rose.. the scent the intake Admire and Adore Behold~ and then wake For onward you must go and leave it behind Do not try to keep only pain will you find The thorns serve thier purpose Those selfish who be for life is a lesson Nothing is free..

I write, but i am not sure I can call it poetry. What I write are my sentiments and deepest feelings. They tend to take the form of verse...perhaps because I have always related to verse more than prose. In the last couple of years, I have written close to 500 pieces, mostly short ones of less than 8 lines. Having said that, most of my writing is so much a reflection of my thoughts, that it feels like parting with a part of myself to let someone I don't personally know well to read it. Very few have ever read my writing. I need them to become friends first (more than just acquaintances). Friends that I can trust with my sentiments. Sadly, very few are willing to make an investment of self in what I believe is the noblest of all relationships.

TY for your response~ Your work must be very good to be THAT important to you.. I am the opposite -I have a most difficult time allowing those who know me on a personal level read any of my writings..like a part of me is no longer impervious, safe or secure..I feel as though an exposed photographic negative to the light!..lol..Thanks so much for sharing a very small, i'm sure, portion of your private 'story'~

To me, it is nothing to do with quality of writing, that keeps me from letting others reading it. My writing isn't writing to me. Like I said, it is my sentiments and feelings. And I am kind of protective of them. Insecure about them. So, I can only let those close to my heart partake in my sentiments and emotions. As for the 'writing' aspect of my poems, I actually thought of them as writing after reading what you said. I haven't seen it as writing before at all.

For my hubby - For my hubby
Your poems are good. I wrote this one for my hubby. Thinking of You Every single day I miss you, You go out to work & I bid adieu, Kiss you goodbye and I come back to bed, It’s still warm where you slept. I snuggle into the covers and think about you, Thanking God for you and our love too. My face lights up when you call, Reminds me of times in the long haul. The clock silently ticks and the day goes by, You are on my mind and I sigh.. I miss you so even though it’s a few hours, Can’t wait till you are home and time is ours!With you beside me I feel so good, Anything you wanted me to I would. I smile within and am content, For sweet memories and moments spent. you can see the rest of my collection at http://exoticworldofpoetry.blogspot.com

hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all, and sweetest in the gale is heard, and sore must be the storm, that could abash the little bird, that kept so many warm, Ive heard it in the strangest land, and on the chilliest sea, but never in extremity, it asked a crumb of me. (Hope - Emily Dickinson)

Today in memory of mrs.higgs birthday today belongs to a fighter. today belongs to someone who will be remebered by others. she'll be remebered for her place on earth. she was an angel sent here from heaven. she left her mark here on earth. today belongs to her. today is her birthday. today is her day. god thought it was time for her to come home and that she suffered enough pain. today is her day. she needs to be remebered today. today belongs to a fighter. she really hasn't left us. she is here in spirit.

3-Can l ever 4get U Can I ever forget u.... You are the only desire of my life..... for you, everything I can sacrifice... But the reality, I fail to see.... that you are not made for me.......... No matter how hard I try...... but in vain, I am only left to cry....... Your memories I fail to detach ..... and the distance I am unable to latch.. I've always loved you deep at heart.... and your thoughts I cannot part.......... maybe you will realise my love someday... and express your thoughts in a special way... There's no harm in dreaming, I believe.... but the very thought of leaving you, I cease... I bequeath my dreams in your name........... I wish this is not all that I can claim............ Guess, this is what my fate holds for me... whatever happens let it be............ But then too I will always love you.... And to win your heart every possible I'll do.

Love - Nice card
A poem I recently made a love card for my boyfriend with. It really matches my own feelings. You Are My Forever Love Your friendship and love, And all the wonderful things That they bring into my life, Are like nothing else I have ever known. My heart is complete With the love we share, And our love grows more Beautiful each day. I love you, And as long as we are together, I have everything I need. You are with me always... In a smile, a memory, a feeling Or a moment we share. You will always be My Forever Love - Uriel Consolo -

i just love this topic and all the poems submitted by others,so here is another poem Everyone in this world is so important None can kill self for any want as nothing more than life is so persistent. You are needed by your dependants whoever may be parents, siblings, lovers, or anyone, nothing is their world without you. You might be a guard or a president, nothing will work without your consent. So as anyone, Everyone in this world is important. Whatever you have bad done great, good, bad, or a murder you were not destined to do that, but you are there, to do the good, you have to, tomorrow. Doing the job today, that of tomorrow increases your life span by a day by a borrow from those subtracted when you were bad, for you to do only good. Forget all the accolades, remember the good of others, utilize the comments and suggestions heed to the advice be the man who is nice. Great is that feeling of "I AM WANTED" If at all this feeling is true, it's a reality, otherwise everything remains an un cherished dream. Live for everyone in this world, Love everything in this world. Work for all your worth Give a meaning for your birth. For sure, reserved is your birth, in heaven, where all is even.

I have said here before that although I have written, neither do I consider what I write as poetry, nor am I comfortable sharing it. I have always felt insecure about letting others read my writing. Have always felt vulnerable, as if I was exposing my innermost self. I have for years now guarded my writing. Only those closest to me have ever read it. And yet, certain things that have happened recently make me question whether anything is worth it at all. Who cares after all? Who is going to understand anyway? And what difference does it make that it is my innermost core that is exposed? So, in rebellion maybe, but here is one of my pieces. This was written after my father passed away because I couldn't afford to give him the medical care he needed, when he needed it. So here goes... Show me not a mirror It laughs at me Or is it my eyes I see what I sought to be Ashamed at what I've become I am not me anymore Give me back my old self Or show me not a mirror I hate the stranger I see (C) Tushar Prabhu

Sun Set What good is a focal point? when one cannot focus What good is tomorrow? when yesterday never came What good can come of promise? when promises are broken Will the sun ever rise and never have to set will life begin and ever, never end Can I see truth in your eyes if only until you blink if only point comes into focus Your eyes or mine Can a second erase eternity? Can eternity ever promise tomorrow the sun will not rise because yesterday it never set ~October, 2005

Hope Is a Tattered Flag by Carl Sandburg 16 Hope is a tattered flag and a dream of time. Hope is a heartspun word, the rainbow, the shadblow in white The evening star inviolable over the coal mines, The shimmer of northern lights across a bitter winter night, The blue hills beyond the smoke of the steel works, The birds who go on singing to their mates in peace, war, peace, The ten-cent crocus bulb blooming in a used-car salesroom, The horseshoe over the door, the luckpiece in the pocket, The kiss and the comforting laugh and resolve— Hope is an echo, hope ties itself yonder, yonder. The spring grass showing itself where least expected, The rolling fluff of white clouds on a changeable sky, The broadcast of strings from Japan, bells from Moscow, Of the voice of the prime minister of Sweden carried Across the sea in behalf of a world family of nations And children singing chorals of the Christ child And Bach being broadcast from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania And tall skyscrapers practically empty of tenants And the hands of strong men groping for handholds And the Salvation Army singing God loves us….

the sea - the sea
I wrote poetries in italian language and I can share this one: "Il Canto del Mare" Le onde spumose s`infrangono sulle bianche scogliere Tutt`intorno e` silenzio nell`alba tremolante Il dolce canto del mare s`innalza come una melodia d`amore, infinita e avvolgente a volte sussurrata, sovente gridata con vibrante passione. L`amico vento leggero cattura dolcemente quel canto lo avviluppa e lo trascina lontano all`orizzonte verso il pallido sole donandolo al cielo per cullare delicatamente il sonno degli angeli sulle morbide nubi.. TRanslated in english..sorry if it isn't so good: "The Song of the Sea" The foamy waves smash themselves on the white reefs All around is silence in the dawn quivering The sweet song of the sea raises itself like a melody of love, infinite and coiling to times I whisper, often screamed with vibrating passion. Light friend wind captures sweet that I sing wraps it and drags it distant to the horizon towards the pale alone giving it to the sky to cherish delicately the sleep of the angels on the soft clouds..

This is a poem about my feelings from being chronically ill and homebound. I sit here trapped and alone, behind walls and doors. In a body I don't know anymore, shades drawn from prying eyes. The life I had but a dream, I have sat for years. Just memories, and many tears, trying to retrieve time. I have no chance for parole I am serving a life sentence. This feels like my repentance, for some sin committed. I know pain so well, spending my time with ones so dear. Praying for the end to get here, only then will I be free.

The Love Song of Night and Day It seems as though the end is near I shivered in fear as I watch the skies The clouds have turned its course aloft It's all because you came into my life All my days I've crawled your path I ate your dust and kissed the sands To you I am but a worthless dime It's all because I came into your life Beyond the halls of this strangled soul Beneath the cloak that hides me whole Still your beauty shines alive It's all because you came into my life Now you wake from an endless dream You try to find what all of it means A question of pain and love inside It's all because I came into your life Streaming shades of different lives Thus the song of day and night....

First Memory by Louise Glück Long ago, I was wounded. I lived to revenge myself against my father, not for what he was— for what I was: from the beginning of time, in childhood, I thought that pain meant I was not loved. It meant I loved.

Lost in tim I have lost the track of time, I have lost the faith that guide, opportunities have ceased, no reson to put up a flight, no words can drawn a fear, no love can bring back happiness, a hope still lies to go back again, fear envelopes the destiny held, With nowhere to go,and noone to trust on, fears drowns me inside, Forgotten i have trusting, Lost i am,Lost alone,With noone to Care, Lost in Time.

Thank you again for you submits! It is an interesting thing how pain, sadness, evokes more inspiration to write than things in life that are positive.. For every poem I have wrote or read, there are about 10 more that involve the darker side of the heart.. I think that much of that has to do with, not the fact that pain inspires us more, but rather that putting it down upon paper, or even upon a canvas, the expression of pain, is therapeutic for us~ Thank you to everyone, again, for sharing something so personal to each and every one of us-

Never will I understand, Why my love, denies my hand. What pain, what suffering have you endured? With my help, can you be cured? My thoughts, my dreams, you re always there, When will you see how much I care? Such little time I ve spent with you, Enough to know my love is true. The further you drift away from me, The more I feel I ll never be free. Perhaps I should just let you go, Your love maybe, I should not know? My love and friendship is always here, And if you should ever shed a tear, My arms are here to hold you tight, For I will always be your light.
